SPY 2 Hour

Nice opportunity to raise stops and strikes this morning if long from lower levels. Prices above the trend line keep the chart bullish.  Stay long.

SPY 30 min

Around $349 / $350 I’d expect some backing and filling

QQQ 2 Hour

Pretty simple here. Prices above $280 are bullish.  Over head targets are $288 and $292.  Stay long against $285 and the trend line. Raise stops / Strikes to $285

QQQ 30 Min 

Clean trend line to follow

IWM 2 hour

The advance looks pretty steep and it’s doubtful the advance can proceed with out a period of backing and filling. A back touch of $160 would likely do the trick. If we got that pull back to support it would be a great entry location.  Long Term resistance is at $167.50.
